1. What is a modular room? Not everyone is familiar with the concept of modular Coldrooms. Basically put, a modular coldroom is refrigeration room whose walls, ceiling and floor is composed of various sections or modules. These modules all fit together and lock into place providing a thermally insulated and structurally sound room. Bromic Coldrooms are composed of modules 85mm thick. As customers may not always use standard refrigeration equipment, all Bromic Coldrooms are shipped with uncut panels. The cutting and/or drilling for the placement of refrigeration units as well as pressure balance valves should be conducted by the installer.

2. Concept and benefits: The fundamental concept of Coldkit Coldrooms resides in the size of the modules and placement of their interlocking cam mechanisms. Our standard modular Coldrooms can be composed of ceiling and wall panels of the following widths: 40cm, 80cm, 120cm. Floor panels are only available in widths of 80cm and 120cm. The heights of standard wall panels are either 200cm or 220cm. All panels interlock with special cam-locks, which align and lock onto each other.

Bromic rooms may be used as freezers as well as chillers. For temperatures at or below freezing the door must have a heating cord and is referred to as a negative door. We also recommend that you place a pressure balance valve through one of the walls in order to equalise internal and external pressure. Bromic Coldrooms all have 85mm thick floors.

3. Setup Requirements Before starting make sure there is sufficient space is available for room assembly, a relevant power outlet is installed and the installation surface is flat and level. 3.1 Power Requirements Power requirements vary for the different room sizes and between cool and freezer as shown in the Table below. MODULAR COOL ROOMS Volume *Size Power 3 (m ) LxW Required 3735510 4 1.8 x 1.4 10A 3735511 5.4 1.8 x 1.8 10A 3735512 8 1.8 x 2.6 10A 3735513 8.4 2.2 x 2.2 10A 3735514 11.6 2.6 x 2.6 15A Part No. *Size = Length x Width in Metres Note: Power requirements are based on usage of standard slide-in refrigeration system selected by Bromic for a general usage coldroom. Altering or changing this unit can potentially alter the power requirements. MODULAR FREEZER ROOMS Part No. Volume *Size Power 3 (m ) LxW Required 3735520 4 1.8 x 1.4 10A 3735521 5.4 1.8 x 1.8 15A 3735522 8 1.8 x 2.6 25A 3735523 8.4 2.2 x 2.2 25A 3735524 11.6 2.6 x 2.6 25A

3.2 Room Sizing Keep in mind that all of the stated room dimensions are external NOT internal. In order to calculate this you must add the width and length dimensions as well as the height and floor spacers to determine the height. Example: A Coldroom 2.6m long x 2.6m wide x 2.2m high will occupy External Room Width: External Room Length: External Room Height: 2.6 m 2.6 m 2.2 m

A total of 2.6 meters in width by 2.6 meters in length by 2.2 meters in height (260cm width x 260cm length x 220cm height) The above specifies the minimum required space for installing the Coldroom size used in the example but having more space is always a good idea. Since it is thermally more efficient to NOT have the actual coldroom in contact with other walls or structures we would, in this case recommend having the following space: 2.75 m x 2.75m x 2.45 m. (25cm must be allowed in ALL cases above the room, to allow for air flow.)

Where a Zanotti refrigeration unit is to be installed you will need tools for cutting either a wall or a roof panel, depending on if the unit is a Drop or Slide in. Please refer to Page 15 Zanotti Installation for specific details.

InstallationATTENTION: Always wear eye protection when handling beams, posts and other PVC components. PVC flakes will fall from within the coldroom components and can cause injury and/or discomfort. 5.0 Floor After youve made sure that you have the necessary space for installation and that all the components on the packing list have arrived and are in good shape, you are ready to start the actual set up process. 5.1 Floor Panels Floor panels will always have an off-white side and a coated side. For standard floors we apply a black phenolic resin coating over plywood. Floor panels come in lengths of: 80cm, 120cm, 160cm, 200cm & 240cm. Their width will always be 80cm or 120cm. Floor panels are 85mm thick.

5.2 Installing the floor panels Material needed: Floor panels Allen wrench - found inside the Accessory (KITCMA) Box

Select floor panel(s) and position on floor where room is to be constructed, and in the correct direction.

If your Coldroom contains various floor panels, start at a corner and move outward according to the layout provided. When placing the second panel next to the first, align them as indicated on the diagram below and lock them to each other.

To interlock the floor panels, take the Allen wrench and insert it into the cam-lock hole on the coated side of the floor and twist about 45 clockwise. Stop tightening as soon as you feel some resistance. You should not have to twist the wrench more then 45 to 90 (max). When you feel resistance simply stop and try to pull the two panels apart from each other to test whether or not the cam-lock actually hooked to the panel next to it. NOTE: Do not try to tighten the adjacent cam-lock on the second panel. For every cam-lock
